If you are new to spread betting then it is highly likely that you will want to hedge your bets when staking your hard earned cash. Although many companies do not compete to the extent of many other gambling firms, you can still find some great free bets and cash back offers to get you started.

The following are some of the best companies offering free bets to help you get on your way:


Finspreads is the sister company of City Index which is one of the largest spread betting companies on the market. They offer a great platform for those of you new to the game as their interface is very user friendly and their minimum bets are the lowest around. At the moment Finspreads is offering all the clients free trading credit worth £ 100 which should help you get started.

World Spreads

One of the most established spread betting firms on the market, World Spreads also has one of the nicest free bets around. They will cover your losses up to £ 300 (if you make any) which provides you with the security that if the market goes against you, your funds will be secure.


If you have used and like the Capital Spreads platform then you will really like the Intertrader website as it is pretty much the same! Intertrader have a free bet offer worth up to a whopping £ 1000 for new clients but hurry as it is time limited.

Please bear in mind that whatever company you sign up with, spread betting is extremely high risk and you can lose more than your deposit. Use a stop loss to protect yourself from this – a tool that is worth more than its weight in gold!
